Determining the Spurs’ best and worst uniforms of all time

Time to vote for the best and worst Spurs uniforms!

It’s May, and usually that means the NBA world is revolving around the playoffs right now. That is not the case this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic, placing the 2019-20 season in a hiatus it may or may not come out of before the next one begins, so everyone is looking for other stuff to cover.

In that spirit, ESPN came out with a list of the 74 best and 10 worst uniforms in NBA history. The Spurs managed to avoid the latter list — although I can think of at least a couple contenders, the ones that did make it are pretty awful in their own right — and their one uniform that did make the “best” list was their traditional road blacks, coming in at 29th.

29. San Antonio Spurs (Black)

Seasons worn: 1989-present

Notable players in this look: Tim Duncan, David Robinson, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili

While the team’s “Fiesta” logo may have featured festive shades of teal, pink and orange, the main on-court jerseys have always stuck to a simple black and silver design, personifying the no-frills approach that the franchise has long been known for.

This gave me the idea to find which Spurs uniforms fans think are their best and worst of all time. Below is a gallery of all the major ones, followed by two polls for voting. Be sure and vote in each poll and discuss in the comments below!

Note: The list will not consider every single uniform with every single little alteration. For example, there’s little need distinguish the Spurs current traditional V-necked uniforms from the same ones but with a rounded neckline from prior decades, or address every version where the font or shadowing to the letters were slightly changed. We’re just going with general, overall designs. Also, one-time alternates for occasions like Christmas are being excluded.

Enjoy!
